We got a RAM mount 1-1/2" setup with long arm and large Tablet Display bracket for SP3 and found a place near the power to mount it on the dodger
1" ss tubes.
USB Hub: Inoteck 3 port USB 3.0 Hub with Gigabit Ethernet Port - only 1 usb 3.0
: Linksys AE1000 wifi - the onboard is weak and this goes out the hatch
GPS: Holux Bluetooth GPS Slim 240 - works 2nd hand ebay
Bu-353-S4 UPS - works well too.
: DVB-T+DAB_FM - got two that don't work (yet).
: dAISy reciever - works - will add serial bluetooth to it.
12v Power: Found a SP3 power cord that plugs into 12vdc on amazon for good price
Note the last pic with the "Large XTE error" this was created when I selected the active waypoint and moved it while in active route
mode and then completed the move by poking the chart somewhere else. This created the 25 nm XTE error and all the other data values are incorrect.
This was fixed by turning off the Active Route
and then turning it back on.
Opencpn should do this automatically I think when the active waypoint is moved.
Have to set computer into "Presentation Mode" before start because it keeps shutting down and requiring log in. Need to disable the login next and let it shut down to save batteries.
Need to use the Pencil that comes with it because 4.1.602 icons were too small because the Tablet icon enlargement settings are broken. Sometimes it was hard to get the right icon with boat bounce, but it worked ok. Like the Tablet touch screen
for scrolling, changing waypoints on the fly, zoom in and out, etc.
Here are some shots from passage
through the Cape Cod
Canal. Did not have the AIS going then.
We have not put an antiglare screen
